Clary witnesses a murder in a New York City nightclub--and the body disappears into thin air! It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing to show that a boy has died. This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into their world when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know. . . .Full of snappy dialogue like an episode of Buffy. Sequels: City of Ashes, City of Glass.
